THE VIDEO: Fur & Feather Bikini Glam by completely bare

From Swarovski crystals to spray paint and now to feathers and real fox fur, there is one woman not-so-secretly behind the beauty craze of decorating one’s bikini region like a birthday party.


Cindy Barshop, the owner of completely bare high tech spa, famous for both a season on the Real Housewives of New York and her fearless reputation for adorning the hair-free nether regions of women nationwide, has released the latest trend: The Foxy Bikini (real colored fox fur) and The Carnivale Bikini (an array of festive colored feathers). Merkin Madness! More on that here.

In the exclusive video above, Spa Week investigates.

Michelle gets the Carnivale Bikini

So there you have it – Vajazzling‘s out and pubic wigs are in!

Not totally sold? I’m not here to sell you on it – just to tell you what it was like. Yes, there’s a party in my pants, and yes, you are invited. As you’ll see in the video, Cindy Barshop performed The Carnivale on me, and it was a highly customized experience. I asked for a peacock, and a peacock I got. One by one, using a special completely bare glue, she placed the feathers on my freshly waxed bikini zone in a shape to slim my appearance. It was way more flattering than I thought it would be. All these years of diet and exercise, and all I ever needed was a feather merkin!

Does it hurt? Not at all. When my Carnivale was on, I actually couldn’t feel a thing. Unless I touched it, obviously. It wasn’t uncomfortable at all until 3 days later when they started to itch and come loose. At that point, I just peeled them off, painlessly. (Now they are pinned to my office cork board.) The Foxy Bikini and The Carnivale are meant to last 3-5 days (daily showering included) as a kitschy and unique way to spice things up – either for your sex life or your personal confidence. They may not be the most practical or necessary thing in the universe, but it certainly has that sexy shock value that appeals to us (bored?) lovers of innovative beauty.

Including the wax, it’s $225 for the Foxy Bikini and $195 for The Carnivale.

Teachings from the Spa-Obsessed Real Housewives

Not so new newsflash! Everyone’s favorite guilty boob tube pleasure, The Real Housewives, (next to Jersey Shore, yikes) are obsessed with all things spa! What we all wouldn’t give to be a Real Housewife for a day (just one day). But – if you are one of the handful of haters this show has developed, it’s okay. We see your point, especially with all of the bickering and backstabbing.

New Housewife Cindy Barshop talks Vajeweling, Vatooing, and the New RHONY Season

We got the opportunity to peak inside the busy and soon to be nationally syndicated lifestyle of New York’s hottest new housewife and owner of Spa Week hair-removal mecca completely bare spa, Cindy Barshop. Between raising two beautiful twin girls, launching new products, and running a fast-growing, national spa chain we wonder how she does it all. She sheds light on the current Vajewel wave (Vajazzling is out), getting ready for the cameras, and what’s next for below the belt bikini glamour. The new season of Real Housewives of New York premieres tomorrow, April 7th at 10/9c on Bravo TV.

Cindy! We are so excited for the new season of RHONY to start, starring you! Tell us: what makes you different than all the other housewives? My life is crazy and never boring. Between taking care of my beautiful twin girls, creating & growing a national chain of spas & working hard to create standards in the beauty industry, it’s not all fun and games. Running a spa is a LOT less relaxing than actually going to a spa.

Do you find it stressful to always have to be ready for cameras rolling? Is it something you get really prepared for with makeup and hair, or do you just let yourself go? I wouldn’t want you guys to see me when I let myself go! I’m no stranger to getting camera ready, though, having done segments with completely bare for Howard Stern, Today Show, the Early Show, Tyra Banks, Access Hollywood,etc. Although it’s not my personality, I would get a blowout & makeup done before filming… A lot of people are going to be watching, I did my best to look good.

You had Vajazzling on the menu for a long time before it really got big last year. How has your life changed since your spa services became blockbuster hits? Haha, blockbuster! I like that! Well, ever since the YouTube video came out, I saw the magnitude of social media and how with YouTube, Facebook & Twitter affect. Our loyal customers of years keep coming back, but especially now that we have locations in Dallas, Atlanta & Beverly Hills, we can attract a much bigger audience now through social media and that’s been really rewarding.

Are you Vajazzled right now? What design (Or what was the last design you got) Vajazzling is out! Vajeweling is in. Customized crystals in all kinds of shapes, sizes, colors & moods. Vajeweling is like vajazzling’s more sophisticated older sister.


What is your preferred Vatoo design? Funny you ask. That’s going to be announced on RHONY! It’s inspired from our trip to Morocco… You’ll see on the show.



Which housewife co-star is most likely to be Vajeweled right now? Just so you know, we did make each housewife their very own customized vajewel – but I’d have to say Jill Zarin loved hers the most.

Least likely? Whichever doesn’t enjoy sexy lingerie… we’re friends but I don’t know their lingerie habits!  I always say if you don’t enjoy sexy lingerie, vajeweling may not be for you.


What is the next big trend in below-the-belt glamour? That will be answered a couple of episodes in to the season, but here’s a clue: it’s inspired by my trip Morocco. I was blown away by the beauty underneath everything… since everything in Morocco isn’t always pretty from the outside. The ornate designs, the details, the people, the buildings & the landscape all inspired me to create this new service.
